WordPress Announce New iPad Optimized View

WordPress has announced a new iPad-optimized view for WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress blogs.

Nick Momrik writes on WordPress.com:
“The past four months we’ve been working closely with Onswipe to bring your iPad visitors our vision of what a blog can look like re-imagined for a touch experience.

Our iPad-optimized view is app-like in its functionality, but pure HTML5 goodness on the backend: it supports touch interactions, swiping, rotation, and many other features of the iPad. Like when we launched our smartphone-optimized WP-Touch integration in 2009 (now responsible for over 150 million page views a month) this is immediately available and active on the over 18 million blogs on WordPress.com.

On WordPress.com we’re seeing about 750,000 page views a day from iPad visitors and it continues to rise.”
